@Mayflower123 Well of course history is the study of the human past, we want to have a way to know what happened before we were born. D is correct. C the study of human adaptation to the environment. History studies anything that's in the past, but complex societies have developed systems of language and writing, which give us a better account of what happened. Also, the time before writing is also considered part of history, what we know about the past depends on what sources are available, etc artifacts, writings, the story of human activity is also part of history but we may know less about it because fewer sources are available. Answer choice A is also correct for the reason that history is a narrative about how things/events change over time, and one issue though is bias. there's always a degree of bias in anything and any writing, and this also depends on who is writing the document and how close to the event the account was written. Choice B sounds more in lines with science how humans/organisms adapt to their environment.
